Putting Amazing Back Into Grace: Embracing the Heart of the Gospel

May Putting Amazing Back Into Grace CoverStatus: Available

Description

What does it mean to be “saved by grace”? Now revised and updated, this classic reminds readers of the Reformation’s radical view of God and his saving grace, the liberating yet humbling truth that we contribute nothing to our salvation. It lays out the scriptural basis for this doctrine and its implications for a vibrant evangelical faith. Horton’s accessible treatment will inspire readers with a fresh amazement at God’s grace.

God of Promise: Introducing Covenant Theology

God of Promise CoverPublisher’s Description

Since biblical times, history is replete with promises made and promises broken. Pastors and teachers know the power of the covenant, and they know that understanding the concept of covenant is crucial to understanding Scripture. They also know that covenant theology provides the foundation for core Christian beliefs and that covenants in their historical context hold significance even today. But to laypeople and new Christians, the eternal implications of “cutting” a covenant with God can be complicated.

God of Promise: Introducing Covenant Theology unwinds the intricacies of covenant theology, making the complex surprisingly simple and accessible to every reader. With keen understanding, careful scholarship, and insight, Michael Horton leads all believers toward a deeper understanding of crucial covenant concepts.
